A Letter from Ansel Adams - October 23, 1978
Ansel Adams sat, fascinated, listening to Grandfather's workshops on photography. Adams, and the world of the early 20th Century saw the motion of wildflowers turning their faces to the sun, in his films. And in 1926 scientists first saw a cell dividing, a life process common to people and flowers, in Pillsbury's films.

Science, Photography and the World We See Today.
If one man understood the dangers of a centralized government in 1912 and wanted to provide some means for ordinary people to know the truth, what would he do? This is the answer one man found.
Sociopaths - They Prey on All of Us
The person behind those smiling eyes may not be human, a we understand the word. You could be seen only as prey, to be used, consumed, discarded. Advances in neurobiology now measure our emotional response to words. All words are the same to sociopaths. Lacking conscience, sociopaths think nothing of lying, enjoying the thrill of deceit. You need to understand them to protect yourself.

Restore the Constitution; Indict Thomas Anderle.
Judges who are sitting unlawfully on the bench are not there out of carelessness. Over the past decades the plan to displace the rule of law under the Constitution has been advanced by a series of groups, all tied to big government and multinational corporations. Eisenhower warned us as have others. It is time to take note and exact accountability. Demand the oath of office; demand their bonds. Restore the Constitution.
End the FED Before It Ends Us.

American taxpayers fund a racket that wrenches the stomach. That is CPS. Some of those involved claim their are just following orders, others just pocket the bounty on children wrenched from their parent's arms.

Tin Hats, Truth, and Being Prepared for what will come.
The largest and most significant power for governance is the people. Government is best likened to the plunger you use to clear your toilet; it is just the tool used by the people to order their business. The people precede all government and possess absolutely the right to alter or change government as they deem necessary. When government gets uppity the people should remember who is in charge.
A Happy Mother's Day Greeting from Social Services
Have no doubt, Social Services has been effectively privatized, that means corporatized. The government that runs it is a corporation that views children and disabled adults, and all of us, as unrealized profits. Their scam is ugly and it is time it was stopped.

How will future historians view the Ron Paul Campaign? They will recognize this as the change point, when the people realized they could do it themselves.
